"It is certainly the largest, most detailed, and lavishly illustrated monograph ever to appear on the subject. The jewelry of each province of India and Burma is carefully examined and described, with citations from works of early travelers and other authorities giving the native terms and synonomies for specific types of jewels, and, in some instances, for gemstones, jewelry-making techniques, and other matters connected with the central theme."--Gemology by J. Sinkankas, entry no. 2875.
"The color plates depict natives in traditional costumes in which jewelry is part of the costume and prominently displayed. Many plate also show individual jewelry pieces. The monochrome plates depict many hundreds of pieces of jewelry of every type known to exist in India and Burma, and all are, by and large, high quality illustrations. This work is considered the final authority on the subject and copies now are very scarce."--Gemology by J. Sinkankas, entry no. 2875.
